Bulova Watch Cases Project

Submitted by 1955mercury on December 12, 2023 - 5:17pm

I've got a few Bulova ladies empty watch cases. Filled one today. If anyone happens upon some movements for these that they don't want for themselves I would appreciate you letting me know about them. Thanks!

I'm glad these went to a good home. I was tempted myself.

Thank you Stephen. I love projects like these. And they've got a permanent home unless I give a couple of them to my grandaughters or I pass away. I've never sold a watch out of my collection. I've got one more movement on it's way for one of these. They all have the dust covers and the dust cover rings with them. I can't fathom why anyone would gut them like this. These are works of art that will never be made again.

I will dig thru my pile.  I am sure I have a few.   Not sure about good balances but at least it would be a start.

Thank you JimDon. Hope your pile is better organized than mine. I've got an "hour" rule. Even though I'm positive I have one, if I can't find it in an hour I quit looking and buy another one. Or I find something I forgot having and get side tracked and forget all about what I was looking for in the beginning.

That 'Hour' rule sounds expensive.

I wish I had the same rule with American whiskey...alas I always know where the bottle is.

It's a good rule. Everytime you give up after an hour and buy another you increase your chances of finding what ever it is the next time by 200%. You should see my spark plug wrench collection. I think I have around 75. At least 5 in every size I could possibly need except the size I need at any given moment. And I've lost myself and couldn't find me a few times with the help of American whiskey.
